Lock & Key Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Lock & Key Blog hop. So glad you could join us! There are lots of amazing projects so if you didn't start at the beginning you might want to go to Club Scrap Creates. There is a list of all the bloggers.

I've done a book again for this hop. The papers, to me, wanted to be in a book just like Bookshelves. I didn't do a stitch bound book like Bookshelves but used my Bind-It-All like I did for my planner. Papers, fibers, sequin embellishments and stamps are from the Lock & Key kit. Beads are from various kits.

I started out choosing which papers were going to be inside pages and which paper would be best for the cover. I then inked up the edges and stamped images on the pages.

Next I punched the holes with the Bind-It-All and bound the pages and covers together.

There was some luscious hand made paper this month so I used it and some lovely copper lace for the cover.

The next 3 images are of the inside pages. I decorated some of them with the cut-outs that came in the embellishment side.



And the finished book.

Thank you for looking! Your next stop on the way is Shona's blog at Shona Scraps.

  2. Isn't it great when the paper "speaks" to you? I'm so glad you "listened" and created this awesome book. I love all the little details you included. This will make a great gift for someone...or, you know, yourself!

  8. That is so cute - Are you going to use it as an album or something else? It reminds me a little of RuthAnn's Retreat book she takes to organize everything and take notes about stuff during retreat.
